Teacher Interview
By Nissa Jensen
Our second interview of this month was with Mrs. Anderson. She has alwaysloved computers ever since she was a little girl. Her favorite computer game wasThe Oregon Trail. Mrs. Anderson went to college at Marquette, and her favoritething about teaching computer class is that she gets to see every grade each week.When she first came to Portland, Holy Cross was the first church she attended.
Then, Ms. Meyer’s position opened up! Her favorite app is IMovie and some wordsof wisdom now: “Always create a strong password.” –
Mrs. Anderson. Thank you!
